Course Overview:

Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks Training v2.0 (SWITCH) with Hands-on Labs

Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks Training v2.0 (SWITCH) is one of three courses associated with tests required to earn the Cisco CCNP Routing and Switching certification. The Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks Training v2.0 (SWITCH)course builds on the switching skills that the student developed in the CCNA Routing and Switching curriculum. This Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks Training v2.0 (SWITCH) course will prepare students to design, implement, and manage complex enterprise switching environments using the Cisco Enterprise Campus Architecture though lectures and hands-on lab exercises.

Customize It:

• If you are familiar with some aspects of Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks Training v2.0 (SWITCH), we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks Training v2.0 (SWITCH) course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
• If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks Training v2.0 (SWITCH) course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
